No A-Class Hatchback models have been sold in the United States but some of the changes you see on this A35 Hatchback prototype are capable of filtering through the cla 35 and gla 35 related sold in the country.

Similarly, changes to the updated version of the regular A-Class Hatchback are also in the process of being tested in prototype form that will likely apply to related CLA-Class and GLA-Class models. Note, an updated A-class sedan is also in the process of testing but won’t go on sale in the U.S., as the current version launches after the 2022 model year.

The A35 Hatchback prototype is only lightly camouflaged. We can expect some modifications to the grille and perhaps the new interior in the headlights. It looks like the front will have a slightly modified design.

There will also be some changes inside. Look for a new steering wheel design, along with a modified center console with the dashboard of the current model replaced by simpler controls.

It’s unclear what AMG has planned for the powertrain, but there may be more power. The A35 is currently powered by a 2.0-liter 4 inline turbocharged engine with 302 horsepower and additional power that can be added through a lightweight hybrid setup or maybe even a larger turbocharger with an electrified component to minimize turbo lag. The second version is expected to increase the horses from the same engine to 442 hp in the updated AMG A45.

The rest of the A35 Hatchback package will remain the same after the update, meaning the standard 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, as well as all-wheel drive with a maximum torque split of 50:50.

Look for the updated A-Class lineup, including the A35 Hatchback, which will launch in 2022. These cars will launch as models in 2023.
